4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aromas of shortbread, flowers, granny smith apples, coconut, and melon. Hazy, pale apricot, with a mostly lasting, white head. The taste contains very little sweetness, with hints of butter cookies and subtle fruity flavors, and dries up very quickly with light, earthy hop bitterness. Medium-full body, very creamy and smooth with spicy overtones, and finishes quite abruptly, leaving behind soft, dry, malty notes. This is a beer that offers so much throughout all of the brilliantly subtle nuances, and maintains such clarity on the palate; one of the most refreshing beers I have ever had, despite all of the fascinating complexity.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet and sour? Am I in a Chinese restaurant? Deliciously frothy, fruity (mostly raisins), bready and a hint of dry and sour on the finish. High alcohol content nicely hidden (am I sweating?). Poured from a bottle.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours hazy orange with a beautiful lasting, thick white head. Great lacing. Malty aroma with some clear yeasty hints. Some ripe fruits as well and also a slight spicy touch. Nice and complex. World class. Taste is smooth and perfectly balanced between sweet, roasty and bitter. Beautiful honeyish hints, nice yeasty kick, clear caramels/sugars, lingering ripe fruits and a spicy kick. Midly dryish in the aftertaste, but the fruity sweetness never fades away. Full bodied, great creamy texture and a fitting, not too lively carbonation. Wonderful balance accompanied with great complexity. Marvellous piece of beer-art and definitely a fantastic tripel.

Bottle. Pours a huge glass of foam. No, seriously, I had to wait a good five minutes to get beer out of this. When it finally calms down, we have a lovely hazy gold with the most creamy, fine-grained, even white head I’ve ever seen -- this is whipped cream here, I can get soft peaks out of it with a finger. There’s so much head it mutes the nose, but what there is is lemon, toast, yeast, and phenols. Rich and sweet on the tongue; there’s some sourness and breadiness to balance it, and it’s a nicely restrained, delicate, elegant tripel, almost perfect in how well it hangs together. Finish is long, warm, and slightly sweet. A magnificent example of the style.

St. Bernardus Tripel is a lightly hazy medium golden pour with a big head of off white bubbles. Nose is yeasty with some banana notes. Taste is slightly tart with some bread like qualities and a hint of wine. The body is really lush. a very nice Belgian.
